Dixmyth Ave (45220) Lewis Center Collins CONTINUED FROM PAGE B-l Collins had been driving to Knoxville, Tenn., to attend a meeting with the City Ballet of Knoxville, which shares the company with the Cincinnati Ballet. 'Dream came true' Colins, a native of London, England, joined the Cincinnati Ballet as ballet master and teacher for the 1988-89 season. He was appointed co-artistic director with Ivan Nagy in March, 1990, and became artistic director in August, 1990. In May, Collins arranged a highly successful collaboration among the Cincinnati Ballet, choreographer Christopher Bruce and the traditional Irish band the Chieftains in Sergeant Early's Dream. "Richard was so full of life and ideas. We were planning so many things," Chieftains leader Paddy Moloney said Thursday from his home in Dublin, Ireland, upon learning of Collins death. "He had worked so hard to bring us to Cincinnati to play Sergeant Early. It was Richard's dream and his dream came true. He worked a miracle. Now that this has happened to him, there should be a concentrated effort to make Sergeant Early happen in a bigger way." Collins, Cincinnati Ballet and the Chieftains were planning an Australian tour of Sergeant Early's Dream, Moloney said. A graduate of Oxford University, Collins began his dance career with London's Royal Ballet School. In 1968, he became the first Englishman to train with the Bolshoi Ballet. In 1970, he joined the Bol-shoi's corps de ballet and then became a soloist, j He recounted , his experiences there in a book, Behind the Bolshoi Curtain. His novel, Minka, was published in 1986,- the same year he collaborated with composer Ka-zimiercz Ozga on the children's musical Cacophonia, which was produced in Poland. In 1973, Collins became a soloist with the London Festival Ballet and taught at the Royal Ballet School. From 1975 to 1977, he was a principal dancer with the Irish National Ballet and performed with the Royal Ballet Company and Ballet Rambert. Wanted to start school "The ballet has lost a wonderful teacher and organizer and administrator," said Jefferson James, director of the Contemporary Dance Theatre. "We shared the same ideas, that dance is not something on a pedestal, that dance is something human and communicative. "He really wanted the community to be more involved," James said. "He wanted to start a school. He already started an education program, and just a lot of things to make dance and ballet more personal and make it more important to the audience." Paul Stuhlreyer III, Cincinnati Ballet executive director, said Collins had completed plans for the company's 1991-92 season. "He had a great vision, and you will see the results of that vision this year," Stuhlreyer said. The annual meeting of the ballet's board of directors opened Thursday evening with an announcement of Collins' death, followed by a few words of tribute, then a moment of silence in his memory, said Stuhlreyer. "As he would wish, we carried on with the business the company." crash. Service planned at Emery The Cincinnati Ballet will conduct a memorial service for Collins at 11 a.m. Saturday at the Emery Theatre, 1112 Walnut St., Over-the-Rhine. Thursday night, Moloney was uncertain whether he and the other Chieftains would fly from Dublin for Saturday's memorial service at the Emery. "I should be there," he said. "It would be the right thing to do. . . . Tomorrow we'll decide what to do for poor Richard, God love him." Surviving are his wife, Elizabeth; two daughters, Leah and Martha; a son, Toby; and a stepson, Ian. His mother and two brothers live in England. Funeral arrangements were pending Thursday. Enquirer reporters Cliff Radel and Anthony Necly contributed to this story. ; CONTINUED FROM PAGE B-l weeks ago, Hogan ordered the staff to look into two incidents related to the Lewis Center: A 35-year-old Clifton man committed suicide after being released a day after he was admitted to the center on a referral from University Hospital. A former Lewis Center patient was denied readmission on the basis that he was "mentally ill and potentially dangerous." Critics of the Lewis Center and the state's decision to close the Rollman Psychiatric Institute in 1990 and merge the two institutions contend that those cases are among many examples of problems at the center. They contend that since the merger, more mentally ill are coming into the Lewis Center but are not receiving adequate care. Tom Woodruff, president of the union that represents Lewis Center professional employees, said the state investigation announced Thursday would not go far enough. "These policies were all under the state's direction. And for the state to now say it's going to investigate what (it) required is worse than asking the fox to investigate a missing chicken from the chicken coop," he said. Woodruff is calling for an independent investigation of Lewis Center policies. "It is an internal investigation and we would expect nothing but a cover-up from it," he said. The independent team should begin with a representative from city council or one appointed by council and local judges who are concerned .about Lewis Center practices, he said. An assistant to Saundra Jenkins, chief executive officer of the Lewis Center said Jenkins was "not allowed to comment at this time." Hightower-Leftwich stressed the investigation was not just an investigation of what happens at the Lewis Center. Investigators will examine "if we have set up a system that we admit or discharge in a timely manner, or if we are receiving admissions that we should be receiving or if (those patients) should be referred somewhere else." There is no timetable for completion of the investigation, but Hightower-Leftwich said she expects the team to report back to Hogan with findings and possible recommendations. t i
